Thank you for joining and welcome Smile
It's turning into quite a big thing these days, so it's good to get all the people we can involved.

It can be a lot of different reasons, though I think the most popular is by insecure or attention-seeking people. They fake a really attractive person in order to get more attention or feel good about themselves.
Other than that there are reasons like: scamming people out of money (some people fake having a terminal illness or something and set up a donate fund), luring younger people into meeting-up, or like in the case of roleplaying, just as a game.

We have a few precautions on the site, such as members can be called out if their emails/names/pictures lead to fake sites and such. When a member is called out, they have to 'salute' sending pictures of themselves holding up a sign saying 'FakeBusters', therefore proving themselves as real and the person in their pictures.

It depends, if they want to be a saluted reference, it gets put up. If not they can just salute privately to admin.
